“The Edmonton Punk Scene”

Music scenes in Canadian cities like Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver get lots of attention. But as everyone in Edmonton knows, there’s lots going on here too. We’ll trace the connections bands like SNFU had with the wider punk network in the 1980s. We’ll look at contemporary bands too, as well as venues, radio shows, and other musical institutions.

Also, local punk rocker David Gault will be presenting a video he made about a song written by Ben Sir from Worst Days Down. After that, we’ll plan out our first punk homework assignment, where everyone picks an Edmonton punk band to do a short presentation on for next class. Don’t worrk, everybody already got an A.

Playlist:
SNFU – “Cannibal Cafe”
The Smalls – “Dan Diddle A Na”
Ben Disaster – “Where the Night Goes Darkest”
Zero Cool – “We’re Not Fugazi”
